The treatment takes about an hour or so, and involves the insertion of painless hair-thin needles into points on the face as well as on the body. Needles are skillfully placed in certain strategic areas on the face, for about 45 minutes while you rest peacefully. Most of my clients sleep or drift into a deeply meditative place, attesting to the depth of relaxation that is achieved.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is sometimes be referred to as an ‘Acupuncture Face Lift’ or ‘Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture’ or ‘Face Lift Acupuncture’ and even ‘Acupuncture Facelift’. It’s all that, and more than just a cosmetic procedure; it rejuvenates and revitalizatizes the whole body to look and feel younger.

That’s because Cosmetic Acupuncture is a bona-fide Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment that is tailor-made to your unique constitution. The needling points and techniques are not one-size-fits all. Only a Chinese Medicine practitioner specially-trained in the principles of Chinese Medicine and facial acupuncture can properly diagnose which needle-points will get the results you need. The result is the epitome of a natural-looking therapy!
You may have already wondered what to do about the challenges that passing time can etch on our faces. Facial Acupuncture is a safe, cost-effective, non-invasive, non-toxic, and chemical-free, side-effect free way to reduce wrinkles, firm skin, and erase the signs of age. There is no ‘recovery time’. After a few pampering treatments the results appear. It won’t be long before friends start telling you that you ‘look fabulous’ and ask you what your secret is.
Cosmetic Acupuncture Rejuvenation
Best of all, you retain the real “you”, only she is a more youthful you. Cosmetic Acupuncture Rejuvenation does not alter your bone structure or move your skin to a place it was never meant to be. Essentially, the treatment repairs your skin similar to the way in which regular acupuncture repairs the tendons in someone suffering from tennis elbow. You may ask “What is acupuncture and how does it work?” Click here for a detailed description of How Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture works.
For thousands of years, the Chinese have known that beauty comes from the inside. As early as the Sung Dynasty (960 AD), Acupuncture rejuvenation practices were employed for the Empress and the Emperor’s concubines to enhance beauty. In the past 2,000 years, more people have been successfully treated with acupuncture than with all other health modalities combined. While acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat problems like pain and sickness, its popularity has been growing in leaps and bounds as a way to reduce wrinkles and tone the skin. C
There are two aspects contributing benefits for your Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation. One is the benefit of a ‘local’ treatment, and one is the benefit of a root’ treatment. Local treatment directly addresses facial aging symptoms, while root treatment treats the underlying cause of facial symptoms such as hormonal balance, digestive problems, or emotional stress. Both local and root treatments are performed in each session to provide the best synergistic longest lasting benefits.
Cosmetic Acupuncture Rejuvenation actually treats the whole body. It’s impossible to treat just the face, because for the most part, it’s a symptom, a mirror to what’s going on in the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine concentrates on the health of the whole person (body, mind, and spirit).
When needles are gently placed in the facial muscles, they stimulate all the channels that have points on the face. At least 8 other channels, such as the stomach channel, are activated. Consequently, Facial Acupuncture Renewal patients have noticed, for instance, their digestion, stress, and sleep, also improved after facial treatments.
Since the body, mind, and spirit are all connected, negative emotions reflect on the face and even change the appearance of skin texture, color and tension. Acupuncture eliminates stress and brings out innate strength, vitality and health. You will look younger and feel younger. Studies show that stress is the number one killer in the world. It leads to high blood pressure, heart disease, and all kinds of other ailments. Have you ever considered how stress can affect your face? And certainly, stress causes one to age more rapidly (including in the face). Acupuncture is one of the best stress relievers.
Common sense would tell us that treating the underlying cause of why someone is aging is preferable to masking the outward symptoms and allowing further decline and dysfunction to continue within the body. I address your vitality and longevity in every treatment while simultaneously repairing the effects of Father Time.
